Apreciada familia de American School

Salud y bendiciones para toda la comunidad educativa de American School, en este nuevo año 2021. Sean bienvenidos todos.

El año 2020, fue duro y difícil para todos, pero logramos culminarlo con éxito por los valores adquiridos, tales como: paciencia, tolerancia, esfuerzo, responsabilidad y otros valores inherentes a nosotros y la ayuda de nuestro Dios. No estábamos acostumbrados a esta nueva modalidad.

Llegamos al final del año escolar 2020 con el éxito esperado por todos. Gracias a los acudientes, padres, madres o familiares que apoyaron a sus hijos, nuestros estudiantes, a pesar que muchos tenían que trabajar y poner en juego su vida, llegaban a sus hogares cansados pero motivados por el amor que sienten por su familia, y les ayudaban en lo poco o mucho, pero daban su voz de aliento
a esos niños, jóvenes encerrados en sus hogares, pero con el pensamiento puesto en “esto también pasará”.

Logramos muchas cosas, a través de la educación virtual, y en American School, dimos las horas que están en nuestro currículo, ofrecimos suficiente tiempo de clases, a través de lo virtual, de manera sincrónica y asincrónica, y estuvimos siempre allí, aunque sea a través de una pantalla, para ayudar y dar lo mejor que hay en cada docente de nuestro centro educativo.

Nuestras expectativas aumentan para este nuevo año escolar 2021, esperamos superar las debilidades y convertirlas en fortalezas y las amenazas en oportunidades para el bien de nuestro centro educativo.

Le agradecemos a los nuevos padres y estudiantes por haber seleccionado nuestro centro educativo para la formación educativa cónsona con el entorno de nuestro distrito y, de nuestro país.

Somos conscientes que enfrentaremos un nuevo reto, pero con la ayuda de todos y de nuestro Dios, estaremos otra vez en victoria de otro año escolar superado.

Con mucho aprecio,

Profesor Héctor L. Morales A.
Head of School
